Never kept either but I suspect the puffers would nip at the angels pretty badly.

No. Puffers are not designed to be kept in general community especially long-finned species.

In addition to being nippers, puffers prefer brackish water.

There are many different types of puffers, all needing different conditions ranging form freshwater, brackish, to full marine conditions.

Dwarf puffers need freshwater, I assume Enzo is talking about dwarf puffers simply because they are the most popular type of puffer, and I don't think they would survive in brackish water long term.
